Bangkok Stopover Itinerary
Day 1 Arrive Bangkok
Explore the capital of Thailand and perhaps choose to take a luxury night cruise along the Chao Phraya River, passing by many of Bangkok's most iconic sights. Perhaps take a walk past the Grand Palace, enjoy an invigorating Thai massage or grab some bargains in the tourist haven of Khao San Road.

Day 2 Bangkok City Tour
Board a tuk-tuk and set off on an adventure tour through the animated streets of Bangkok. Call by the Amulet Market, see the reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, head into the heart of Little India with a visit to the Pahurat Market and shop for antiques at the Thieves Market. After a visit to the Golden Mount and a lazy lunch, head to Chinatown to discover a wealth of interesting stalls dotted around the quarter. When the sun sets, head to a night market where almost anything can be bought and sold - including bizarre snacks like deep-fried tarantula! The final stop of the day is Pakklong Talad, Bangkok's largest wholesale flower and vegetable market.

Day 3 Bangkok Bike
Set off on a cycling tour to explore some of Bangkok's treasures. Cross over the famed Rama VIII Bridge, pedal along the waterways of Bangkok Noi, ride past the King's royal barges and drop in to see the spectacular Wat Arun. Cycle back through the city via Memorial Bridge and see Wat Suthat and the giant swing Sao Ching-Cha, which is said to represent the God Shiva. Maybe cap off the perfect Bangkok stopover with dinner or drinks atop one of the city's many skyscraper restaurants and marvel at the lights of the seemingly endless urban sprawl - and ponder when you can next come back!
